Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1spread it so we have (cosa)^2+(cosb)^2+2(cosa)(cosb)+(sina)^2+(sinb)^2+2(sina)(sinb) =2+2cos(ab)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Continuing from where @AndrewNJ left, \[2(1+\cos(ab))\] now we know that \[1 + \cos 2a = 2 \cos^2 a\] Now try :D

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2= \[2(1+\cos 2\frac{(ab)}{2})\] Now we have a identity, \[1 + \cos 2x = 2 \cos^2 x\] in your case, \[x = \frac{ab}{2}\] Now try
